How To Get Kalki Koechlin’s Faux Bob And Tangerine Lips
December is a month of celebrations, and in between putting together evening outfits we’re running out of ideas on how to do our hair and make-up. This is precisely why we look to Bollywood celebrities for inspiration. So when Kalki Koechlin recently walked as the showstopper for designer Mayyur R Girotra’s new cocktail collection, we knew how we were going to wear our hair and make-up this weekend.
The first step to applying any make-up is to prep your skin. Use Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Stay Matte Hydrator to hydrate skin. Let the product seep in for 10 minutes then use Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer to keep oil and shine under control. Primer is a lifesaver when you want your make-up to last. Read more about it here. Make sure to wait a few minutes before applying a full coverage foundation like Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation, which works really well in mattifying skin and holding make-up in place.
This look is all about refined elegance, so there’s no scope for shimmery make-up. Line eyes with L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Black Buster to define them and finish with two coats of Christian Dior Diorshow Blackout Waterproof Mascara. Add a light wash of Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals Blush in Vintage Peach on the cheeks and a tangerine-red lipstick like MAC Chili for a stand-out pout like Kalki.
The hair is sleek and glossy, in keeping with the clean lines of her outfit. Straighten your hair if you have a frizzy mane and spritz BBLUNT Spotlight Hair Polish to get intensely glossy hair. Create a deep side part and curl the front sections with a curling iron to make the hair look soft and romantic. Separate the rest of your hair in sections. Take one section and start rolling it upwards from the ends till the nape of the neck, and secure it with bobby pins. Roll the other sections similarly, making sure you tuck it in place at a uniform level. Finish with Tigi Bedhead Superstar Queen For A Day Spray (Rs 950).
